The Tiffen 46mm UV Protector Filter is a general use, clear filter that helps to absorb ultraviolet light and reduce the bluish cast of daylight. This filter is especially useful when photographing at high altitudes or around bodies of water. No additional coloration or contrast is provided, allowing you to pair this filter with others.

The UV filter is also useful as a general protective filter to leave on lenses at all times. Filters help to reduce dust and moisture from reaching your lens element and provide additional protection in case of drops or situations where scratching could occur.

Tiffen filters are made using ColorCore technology; a process that involves laminating the filter substrate between 2 pieces of optical glass, grinding flat to a tolerance of 1/10,000th of an inch, then mounting to precision metal rings.

Absorbs some ultraviolet light and reduces bluish cast of daylight.

      I purchased this filter as an indurance policy to protect the glass on my Panisonic HDC-TM700 camcorder. The filter works fine when using the camera to record HD video, unfortunately it must be removed when taking still photos. The flash is just above the lense of the camcorder, and therefore behind the filter when attached to the camcorder. I took a few photos that were all washed out before it dawned on me that the flash was reflecting off the filter. Once I removed the filter, the photos looked great. I would not say there is a problem with the filter itself, but should not be used in conjuction with the camcorder when taking still photos.

      I bought this as a cheap protection filter for my Pany 20mm 1.7. Of course it works as protection but flare and ghosting is out of control. Bought the Pany to use in low light and this filter has to be removed even if there is a moderate light source in the scene. Much better to have a coated filter for this.

            I mainly rely on a UV filter to protect my lens and it works. It also helps keep dust off the lens so I just need to occasionally clean the filter.

                I use this filter instead of a lens cap so there is one less item to fumble with before taking a picture. It is mostly for protection, but it helps darken the blue sky a bit.

                            A "funny" thing, that is, in a self-mocking way. I bought a lens, forgetting to buy a UV filter, until after I had placed my order. The lens arrived on a Friday, the filter on the following Monday. I needed very much to shoot with the lens over the weekend; but without a UV filter, what was I to do? I bought one locally for three times the price. Sigh. I'll be patient in the future. This 46mm UV Protector Filter by Tiffen is everything it should be. Now that I inadvertently have a spare, looks like I'll just have to buy a lens to go with it.

                                Not much to say. It does what is needed without complaints (by me).Put one on your lens when you unpack it, take it off once in a while to clean it and blow out any dust, put it back. I've saved many a lens from damage by just investing in one of these (non)filters, best insurance you can get.A scratch on this is replace and throw away the old one, instead of several hundred (possibly thousands) of busted lens.

                                          no complaints - does as advertised. I keep a filter on all my lenses for protection. Does not affect image quality.

                                                    The Tiffen UV filters are excellent for the price.
                                                    They have a quality, precision construction. The glass is totally clear and the packaging is nice.

                                                    The best part is they are made in the USA!

                                                    (I bought this filter to protect my Sigma 30mm F2.8 micro four-thirds lens).

                                                      Nice cover to protect the lense, reduces glare.
